Last Wednesday, of course Ariel was back on her bike.  
Then Thursday, we went to cheer.  Ariel got some help from coach Pat.  
Still working on tucks.  

That night, I took Ariel and the boys to the high school for STEAM night.  Science. Technology, Engineering. Art. Math.  We went last year and Dani was there to take us around and we had fun.  
Ariel saw friends right away.  

The cafeteria was filled with interactive science experiments.  
Ariel actually helped build this one.  
Eli working a claw machine.  
Noah drove robots.  

Cool drones.  

Ariel found Juliet.  
Eli drove some other robots.  

Time to shoot rockets!

To infinity and beyond!
This was an ADHD chair.  We will take 2 please!

Never Ending Bike Riding

Last Monday, Ariel rode her bike to school.  
This was crazy because 24 hours earlier she didn't even know how to ride a bike!
The twins just walked.  
After school, she just kept riding.  
Drawing on the driveway is always a big hit.  

Eli went to bounce with Victoria.  
Tessa came over to ride with Ariel, then they cooked.  
Last Tuesday, Ariel rode to school again.  

The chorus was practicing outside.  
Gifted news.  
The new neighbor boy kicked his soccer ball into our cactus and it popped.  He's from Albania and I wanted to replace the ball with the same one so I had one sent from Albania!
So cool!  He was thrilled.  
More bike riding.  
Ariel had some pt on her back.  
Aden had tennis lessons.  
Then we played out back.  

Love that smile!

Art Show

It's Monday night.  Memorial Day.  We are back from a long weekend at the Shore.  I didn't do a post for today, so you get a double post for Tuesday!

A week ago Saturday, it was rainy and Noah had soccer.  
I was surprised at how well Noah did considering the conditions. 

The team had a great game.  

Then we went to Aden's high school for the district art show.  
We go every year as we always have at least 1 kid with art on display.  This year, we had two.  

Noah's turtle.  
We saw a bunch of people we knew.  
Ariel's strawberry.  
We ran into Adam and Kasia. 

Liana and Aden were twins.  
The twins were a bit nuts so we separated them and had them paint.  

Eli then helped me with the castle.  
Ariel needed to make brownies for hebrew school the next day.  
Last Sunday was the last day of Hebrew School.  They had the parents come for the final service.  

It was actually a pretty nice time.  The kids like to sing.  
Then we had Ari's party next door.  Cool car that Ariel and Harper are modeling.  
It was a swim party.  The twins jumped right in and had so much fun.  

Ari asked me to jump with him in the bounce house.  
Cake time.  

Spiderman came to save the day!
Eli stayed away but Noah talked to him.  

Harper did the impossible.  She taught Ariel to ride a bike!
We had been trying to years but she had been too scared.  
She got going fast!
